Hi Richie,
The Harris song has no noted text in the collection. That title appears at the end of the song lists along with 8 others not noted. Perhaps the collector thought they were too common to be of any interest. Kaye McAlpine in the intro suggests certain songs in Greig-Duncan but we can't be certain in most cases. Here's the list:
1. Nae Dominie for me (well known)
2 Whaur are ye gaen
3. Sailor Laddie
4. Banks of the Nile (well known)
5. The Duke of Gordon had &c. (well known) (3 daughters)
6. The bonnie Sailor Laddie
7. A lang Cravat
8. Feckless fanny.
